Church residence refreshed with contemporary neo-gothic architecture

Jessica Evans
Tuesday 14 May 2019

Perched on the heights of the village of Frelighsburg in Montérégie, along the edge of the Rivère aux Brochets, the unique neo-gothic residence has kept its original character whilst integrating today’s contemporary design.

Remaining a place of meditation, the courtyard and the mature vegetation has been preserved in its entirety. The main entrance between this church and the presbytery has a positive impact from the impressive architecture of this residence.

With a volume of 40,000 cubic feet, Fabelta intended to preserve the place’s essence and increase its prestige, combined with the functionality of interior spaces. Inside the building, the bell tower can be seen, and is still functional through a Baltimore foundry with a weight of 850 lbs. Imposing the architectural aspect of the second floor, the large organ blends perfectly with the decor, adding to the prestige of the luxurious residence.

Made to measure ogival windows, also designed by Fabelta, help preserve the historical essence of the design, yet brings a contemporary touch by capturing light and providing the residence with breathtaking views of the rest of the site.

Fabelta is an innovative and high-performance company, whose quest of excellence has led to tailor-made upscale and nothing less. To visit their website, click here.
